CM-500W3A uses a linear CCD image sensor with a built-in 630nm red LED illumination source. CM-500W3A’s internal 32-bit microprocessor reads linear barcodes at 100 scan/sec at a distance of 2” – 10”. Ergonomic and lightweight, CM-500W3A offers three useful functionalities - Bluetooth, Memory, and Cabled: four different Bluetooth Modes are available (Master, Slave, USB HID, iOS) to communicate between PC, mobile phone and PDA; in Memory Mode, it can store up to 500 barcode readings with time stamps for later download; in Cable Mode, with a USB cable (supplied) connected, it can be used as tethered scanner, transferring data to and from internal flash memory, as well as charging the device.
Versatile CM-500WA is compact (5” x 1.5” x 0.7”) and lightweight (2 oz) and features 2 keys (scan/clear) plus a beeper and LEDs to indicate read status. With a USB cable attached, it becomes a “plug & scan” scanner. Without the USB cable, it functions as a memory or wireless scanner. As a Bluetooth device, it can communicate with a Windows PC or a mobile phone, with instant or delayed data entry. CM-500W3A‘s built-in Li-polymer battery pack (3.7V, 420mAH) can be recharged via any USB port, and the unit can read up to 15,000 scans before requiring a recharge.
CM-500W3A’s performance is remarkable - even scanning fine pitch barcodes through translucent static bags. The internal non-volatile memory can store up to 500 scans. CM-500W3A is configurable for time stamp and output data format, and can transmit data to a remote PC either in “keyboard wedge” mode as if typing on a keyboard, or in memory mode, whereby up to 500 barcode scans are stored for batch entry. Supported barcodes include Code 39, INT 25, Industrial 2 of 5, Matrix 2 of 5, Codabar (NW7), Code 93, Code 128,EAN 128, JAN/EAN/ UPC and fully RSS code (GS1 Databar ).
